This spectacular blonde knows how to occupy the entire screen space and draw all the attention to herself, even in a cameo role, eclipsing the main characters. Jennifer Coolidge is considered a comedic actress, however, she copes with more serious roles brilliantly.
Jennifer Coolidge was born in Boston in 1961. She spent her childhood in Norwell, where she graduated from high school and college. Since childhood, Jenny has been a funny girl, amused her friends and family.
And no one was surprised when she began performing alongside other comedians on the Gotham City show immediately after moving to New York. After gaining experience in this project, Coolidge moved to Los Angeles and began work on a similar show called Groundlings.
This project was a great success: the audience laughed at the jokes and applauded, and Jennifer gradually became famous among filmmakers. And one day she received her first invitation to shoot.
I had to start with the roles of narrow-minded blondes, and Coolidge agreed to gain a foothold in the profession. In 1993, she starred in an episode of the Seinfeld project, and immediately after that she was promised a significant role in the Saturday Night Special, but it was not successful and was soon canceled.
However, Coolidge already had the fame of a good comedian, and in 1955 she starred in two films. Although she considers these works to be insignificant, because later more interesting roles came. For example, in the ribbon "Process and Error" (1977). The actress herself considers this role to be her film debut.
And the real popularity came to her after the release of the comedy "American Pie". She only got an episode, but what a! So to play a woman of age who is trying to seduce a very young boy, for sure, few could. Thanks to this role, Coolidge among Americans began to walk the definition of MILF - a woman who is ready to bond with a guy much younger than her.
How did Jennifer bribe her fans? On the screen, she was so spontaneous, sincere and emotional that it was impossible to resist her charm. At the same time, all her roles are obtained with some kind of elusive and inimitable touch of humor - apparently, this property is in the actress's blood. Therefore, it is not surprising that she was invited to "American Pie-2", and this invitation was followed by others.
The audience especially liked the image of Coolidge in the film Legally Blondes. Her Pauletta filled the picture with kindness, sympathy and, of course, humor.
After that, Jennifer had many different roles, and since 2012 she participated in the filming of the project "Two girls on the rocks" for five years. The role of Sophie Kuchinski was written specifically for Coolidge, and here she was able to show all her creativity and fully reveal the talent of a comedic actress.
Strange, but often viewers transfer the image of the hero to a specific actor or actress. So it happened with Coolidge: young guys showed attention to her. It so happened that one won her heart, and they met for many years.
Then the actor Chris Katan became her chosen one, but this relationship was short-lived.
Jennifer is now married to actor Tom Mahoney and they have two children.
